All-in-One S-Off and Root Method for Incredible S

Sometimes, obtaining root can be a difficult process. As many devices have one-click methods or otherwise easy to follow instructions, others still must do it the old fashioned way. This is especially true for HTC phones obtaining S-Off. In some cases, it has become required to literally brick your device to get it downgraded to obtain S-Off. With the instructions getting more convoluted all the time, it’s very helpful and efficient when someone takes the time to put it all in one place.

HTC Incredible S users now have such a place. XDA Senior Member FallenSuisydal has posted an all-in-one root and S-Off thread that will correctly guide users all the way from stock to rooted.

As is expected when multiple processes are combined into a single thread, the whole process will take some times. Users must first figure out which part they need to start with. From there, it’s simply following the steps. As stated, the process is a little long and users can expect to follow anywhere from 22 to 33—a few taking up to 10 minutes to complete—to obtain full root and S-Off so patience is definitely a prerequisite. Aside from that, the process isn’t overly complicated so users looking to get their Incredible S fully unlocked shouldn’t have too much trouble.

For the full instructions, check out the original thread.

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us.

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
